A close up of the tiles
(It was quite difficult to get a good photo that shows the depth of the tiles)
Have you stopped by the Moxie Fab World lately? If not, get moving because Cath is hosting some super fun challenges to celebrate the week long celebration of Paper Crafts magazine's latest and greatest 165-page special publication 75 Creative Card Challenges
The first challenge is to create a paper crafted card that uses 10 or more embellishments in an innovative way. I really do hope that these home made game pieces qualify as an embellishment!
I happened to find a scrap of light colored wood grain paper in my stash that is similar to the tiles of a Scrabble game - Yay! I computer printed the letters on the wood grain paper, then die cut each letter individually using the smallest Nestability square die.
I wanted the tiles to look authentic so I die cut squares from some chipboard type product (reclaimed packaging ?), glued two pieces together, then glued the printed tile on top. 18 tiles x 3 layers = 54 passes through the Big Shot!
I created the "board" graph on the computer, glued the tiles to the board, added some bling and popped up the panel on some SU Tangerine Tango paper.
And while you're in your craft room creating some great cards, how about using this week's Unscripted Sketch for your inspiration? The DT has posted so many variations of the sketch - you will definitely be inspired! We would love to have you play along with this weeks sketch :)
